Ever stumbled on a new hair tool that seemed like a genius idea but you just weren't sure if it would actually work?
And I've gotta be honest with ya. My powers of skepticism are strong. Most of the time, my thought process goes a little something like this:
Me: Hmmm... well this looks interesting. Should I get it?
Me: Can this actually work on my thick hair?
Me: I'll probably end up looking like a French poodle with continental hair cut
Me: Or worse, with a gimmicky product hopelessly tangled in my hair
Me: OMG. What if the heat melts the plastic and this damn thing gets tangled in my hair?
Me: I do NOT need to look like frizzy poodle who got attacked by a hair styler.
Me: You're right, this is probably a gimmick. Stop being lazy and just do your hair the old fashioned way.
Me: *Backs away terrified and empty handed*
Clearly, I have issues that I need to deal with.
So when Revlon offered to let me test out their new Oval One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer ($59.99), I decided it was time to stop talking myself out of trying something new.
At best, it will work and I could tell you all about an awesome new tool. At worse, the above scene would unfold on camera and serve as a cautionary tale for all of us.
Hair grows back and burns heal, right?
Either way, you get to make a smart purchasing decision -- so my job is done.
Now, before we jump in to the demo and review, let's talk a little bit about the new Revlon Oval One-Step Hair Dyer.
Here's what the product claims (directly from Revlon's site):
The salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer is designed to deliver gorgeous volume and brilliant shine in a single step. The unique oval brush design quickly creates frizz-free volume at the root and beautifully full-bodied curls at the ends in a single pass, for salon blowouts at home. Boosted by ionic technology, hair dries faster with less heat-related damage.
Ok, on to the important question: Does this thing work?! Watch me put it to the test.
